Quilters Connection 2009 show, II

Polansky, "Pastoral Disturbance"

Polansky, "Pastoral Disturbance"

Sue Polansky’s masterful, pictoral quilt had a somber theme — the Pennsylvanian Amish schoolhouse shootings of October, 2006.

The close up begins to give you a feel for the number of fabric pieces involved as well as her skillful selection.

Margaret Ryding, "Winter Light"

I liked the movement in Ryding’s quilt.  The close up reveals beaded embellishments and a couple of the interesting prints — my photos do not do this quilt justice.

Beverly Fine’s horizontal piece, below, is a whole cloth quilt (with the exception of a strip of organza ribbon appliqued on).  I don’t know how she obtained so much texture and depth with her surface treatment.

The next piece, by Christine Lacki, was needle felted and pieced, with couched fibers in the centers.  It won Juror’s Choice at Quilts=Art=Quilts 2007.

I have a few more pictures to share.  This week saw me finishing the collage panels for the After Prom Party and starting two quilt commissions.

I just found a flickr account with all of last year’s QC quilts depicted!!  Here it is — Quilter’s Connection flickr.
